Jorge Masvidal-Rustam Khabilov Targeted for November UFC Meeting on Fox Sports 1
A lightweight showdown between Jorge
is reportedly in the works for a to-be-announced UFC
Fight Night event in November.
The booking was announced Tuesday on Fuel TV’s “UFC Tonight.” No
other bouts have been officially revealed for the event, which is
expected to air live on Fox Sports 1.
Masvidal last competed this past Saturday, when he weathered an
early storm from Michael
Chiesa and forced the “TUF 15” winner to submit with just one
second remaining in the second round of their UFC on Fox 8
conflict. Masvidal, 28, has won five of his last six, with his lone
loss in that span coming in a failed 2011 title bid against
then-Strikeforce lightweight king Gilbert
Like “Gamebred,” Khabilov has also yet to lose in the UFC, posting
first-round technical knockouts over Vinc Pichel
Medeiros to begin his Octagon tenure. Known for his sambo
skills and violent suplexes, the 26-year-old Dagestani has finished
nine of his 16 victims by either knockout or submission and has
tasted defeat just once in nearly six years as a pro.
